CareerEdit

 
Narvaez in 2018

Originally from the Sucumbíos Province,[4] whilst at school Narváez was a member of a cycling club founded by one of his teachers, former Olympic racing cyclist Juan Carlos Rosero. The club has also produced a number of other professional riders, including Richard Carapaz and Jonathan Caicedo.[5] Narváez became a multiple-time Pan American Junior champion in 2015.[6] For 2016, Narváez competed for Klein Constantia.[7]

Narváez started the 2017 season competing in the Volta ao Alentejo.[8] He won the Circuit des Ardennes with two stage runner-up finishes, despite a fall in the final stage.[9] He was the youngest winner of the event in a decade.[10]

In 2018, Narváez joined UCI WorldTeam Quick-Step Floors on a three-year contract, making him one of only two Ecuadorians in the World Tour.[11] In late 2018, Narváez broke his three-year contract with Quick-Step Floors to join Team Sky for the 2019 season.[1] In May 2019, he was named in the startlist for the 2019 Giro d'Italia.[12]
